Mercutio Peters   My Press Releases

We must come into a transformed knowing, an unknowing which comes not from ignorance but from knowledge

A stream, from its source in far-off mountains, passing through every kind and description of countryside,at last reached the sands of the desert. Just as it had crossed every other barrier, the stream tried to cross this one, but it found that as fast as it ran into the sand, its waters disappeared. It was convinced, however, that its destiny was to cross this desert, and yet there was no way.

Now a hidden voice, coming from the desert itself, whispered: "The Wind crosses the desert, and so can the stream." The stream objected that it was dashing itself against the sand, and only getting absorbed: that the wind could fly, and this was why it could cross a desert.

"By hurtling in your own accustomed way you cannot get across. You will either disappear or become a marsh. You must allow the wind to carry you over, to your destination." "But how could this happen?" "By allowing yourself to be absorbed in the wind." This idea was not acceptable to the stream.

After all, it had never been absorbed before. It did not want to lose its individuality. And, once having lost it, how was one to know that it could ever be regained?

"The wind," said the sand, "performs this function. It takes up water, carries it over the desert, and then lets it fall again. Falling as rain, the water again becomes a river." "How can I know that this is true?" "It is so, and if you do not believe it, you cannot become more than a quagmire, and even that could take many, many years; and it certainly is not the same as a stream." "But can I not remain the same stream that I am today?" "You cannot in either case remain so," the whisper said. "Your essential part is carried away and forms a stream again. You are called what you are even today because you do not know which part of you is the essential one."

 

We must come into a transformed knowing, an unknowing which comes not from ignorance but from knowledge.

 

I will leave you to draw your own conclusions my only hope is that this story will help us understand (as it did me) the uniqueness of our being and the importance for us to become 'all things' to 'all men' this gift giving season of our lives.

 

Its happening @ PetesPlace. The previous batch was successfully completed with 100% placement. The Next batch commences the first week of April.
